Join Me in My Addiction!

Thank you for visiting my blog...and for allowing me to share with you my addiction. I love to collect recipes. I love to read cookbooks. I have been collecting recipes for as long as I can remember, and on any given day there are one or two (or more!) cookbooks residing on my nightstand!

This blog is chronicling my adventure as I fulfill my resolution of trying (at least) one new recipe each week. I hope that you enjoy!

I invite you to join me in my journey, simply by clicking the "Join this Site" link below. And please feel free to comment on any of the recipes, and pin away. Thanks, I look forward to sharing with you!

Meal Plan Monday

Hello friends! Happy Monday to you.  How was your weekend?  Mine was great!  It was our 9th wedding anniversary, and we were treated to a night away.  My parents looked after our kids for a night and we planned a 24 hour getaway.  It was so lovely!

Back now, and back to reality.  Here's this week's meal plan:

Monday: Leftover pizza (we had take-out last night)

Tuesday: Grilled chicken, baked broccoli and salad

Wednesday: Grilled pork chops, peas and perogies (our traditional "3P"'s a kid-pleaser!)

Thursday: Lasagne and salad (I'm making a big lasagne on Wednesday night, Thursday this week is a busy one with my hubby on the road for work and I have a PAC meeting in the early evening)

Friday: Leftover lasagne and salad (Fridays are hockey nights in our house, leftovers make for easy meal planning with the busy schedule!)

Saturday: Steak, Smashed Potatoes, Caesar Salad

What's on your menu this week?

Meal Plan Monday

Alrighty friends, I am back!

The break was much longer than anticipated, but the end of last year saw me focusing on other priorities - family members in need.  Much of the year, and especially the latter half saw heartbreak, deceit, pain, suffering, and a death.  My Grandfather passed away just before Christmas after a lengthy illness.  He is at peace now and has been reunited with my Grandmother.  And the other family member who was in need is now finally at a point where they can start rebuild their life and hopefully start to heal.

Even with all of that, I was still cooking away - my hubby, kids and I still had to eat, and I do still love trying new recipes.  Some things never change!  I am still a big planner when it comes to our meals.  So, figured I would start back into the blog with Meal Plan Monday!

Here is this week's meal plan:

Sunday - Rosemary Pepper Crusted Roast, Mashed Potatoes, Gravy and Salad

Monday - Leftovers

Tuesday - Savoury Fish and Salad

Wednesday - Pork Chops, Perogies & Peas (3 "P" Night)

Thursday - Spaghetti & Salad (are you noticing a salad theme?  I m very lucky 
to have two kids who love their veggies, especially fresh in a salad!)

Friday - Chicken Courdon Swiss & Salad

Saturday - Out for dinner, it's our 9th wedding anniversary!

I hope you have a wonderful week!
